Talking points for this rule are: 1. They are requiring the Social Cost of Carbon to be used but they do not specify at what amount. They are using an outdated discount rate of 8%. They should specify the same amount for Social Cost of Carbon and discount rate that the Colorado Legislature passed into law this year. 2. They should require third party audits of emissions reports by manufacturers, not rely on self-reporting.
